Does anyone now what font it is on this badge?
I did email in and ask but they didn't know.

Helvetica condensed Bold will accomplish this -- if you are on PC, a good alternative is either:
Zurich Compact Bold
You can tell by the tail on the R and how the C compacts

so on a mac it is Helvetica condensed Bold
and on a PC an alternative is Compacta or Zurich Compact Bold.
Is that right? Can you get any of these fonts free?

Helvetica comes pre-loaded on a MAC. The other may be free somewhere.
Find Compacta here:
Heveltica Condensed here:
They have a font tool to make the fonts compatible for whichever OS you are using PC to MAC or MAC to PC
got that link from bradyj awhile back.

it looks like that if i don't have the font i have to buy it.

Honestly, you wouldn't have to buy it. Helvetica, Compacta, and Zurich are industry standard fonts -- and companies like Typography and all that don't often sell them anymore (hardly) because they come standard with your machine, or MS office, Illustrator, etc. If you have a serial number for any of these programs, it is assumed that you should have these fonts as well, and it is not a liability.
To clarify: It's Freeware with your program purchases.
